ZURICH (Switzerland) (AFP) - Italy are set to ring the changes against Romania in a must-win Euro 2008 Group C match on Friday following their 3-0 humbling at the hands of the Netherlands. Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport speculated that coach Roberto Donadoni, who was castigated in the press following Monday's defeat, may change up to five players as well as his formation, switching from a 4-3-3 to a 4-3-1-2. That could mean that Bayern Munich forward Luca Toni has some welcome company up front against the Romanians. He insisted, however, that the Netherlands defeat was an anomaly and that the world champions can and will bounce back. "The 3-0 score was really hard on us and honestly, on the pitch we didn't deserve to lose by that," he said. "The difference wasn't as big as that. "Now we have to regroup against Romania. We are the same group of players that won in Scotland to qualify and we have to all concentrate on the same objective. "We were really annoyed in the changing rooms but there's two more games to play - we lost the battle but not the war." Veteran forward Alessandro Del Piero may come into the side now with Sampdoria's unpredictable Antonio Cassano also possibly promoted to the starting line-up as Italy go in search of victory. In defence Marco Materazzi could be replaced by Giorgio Chiellini and veteran full-back Christian Panucci might lose his place to Lyon's Fabio Grosso. There could also be a change in midfield with the combative Gennaro Gattuso making way for AS Roma's Daniele De Rossi. Whatever Donadoni opts to do, the players know they need to react and come back stronger than before. "We accept the criticism after a defeat, it's normal but we know our worth," added Toni. "Against Romania we will try to rediscover the Italy of before, the strong team we had in qualifying and we will do everything to win." Toni said that although the team often relies on him to score the goals, he doesn't care whose name goes on the scoresheet, as long as Italy win. "I know Italy rely on my goals but if I don't score and help the team that's ok - the most important thing is to win. "Even if (goalkeeper Gianluigi) Buffon scores that would also be great." Toni played down the absence of injured captain Fabio Cannavaro claiming Italy would have lost anyway, even if he'd played. And he said the players owed one to their coach. "We're all desperate to get back on the pitch to put things right," he said. "Everyone massacred Donadoni so it would be good to win against Romania for him." Meanwhile, Romania are expected to field the same team that frustrated the French but captain Cristian Chivu warned the Italians his side had much more to offer than the dour defensive tactics which earned them a point in their opening match. "We can be a lot more dangerous going forward," the Inter Milan defender insisted. "The match with France was very cagey but against Italy we should have more space because they will be trying to score at any price." That theme was echoed by Chivu's team-mate Marius Niculae. "If we can draw with France, it shows we are capable of qualifying from the group. "We still have a lot of work to do but the match against France showed what we can do if we work hard and keep our shape." None of the Romanians would admit to having been surprised by the fact that the Netherlands had beaten the world champions. "Italy are still a very good side in attack, but in defence ...?" said the Getafe right-back, Cosmin Contra, his unfinished sentence reflecting what appears to be a genuine belief that an ageing Italian side without Cannavaro could be there for the taking.
